Can you say ‘Fake news’?
Liberal political/media complex
scrambling to get their stories straight
The white lab coats at the Blaska Policy Werkes have been pre-occupied with more local affairs, if you catch our drift. (And we think you do!)
So, on to the Mueller investigation …. add it to a growing list of the great hoaxes of all time:
- Hands up, don’t shoot!
- The Covington Ky Catholic boys taunting the Native American drummer
- Bret Kavanaugh is a serial rapist
- Jussie Smollett
- Piltdown Man
- The Hitler Diaries and, locally,
- Mr. Rob the racist, positive behavior coach viciously beat a black child at Whitehorse middle school.
For most Americans, we suspect, it’s over But too many politicians and their allies in the news media are too far down the rabbit hole to climb out now.
David Brooks is the kind of establishment conservative, safe for PBS, that gives RINOs a bad name. Still, Brooks decrees: “Many Democrats made grievous accusations against the president that are not supported by the evidence.”
“You have a president who, in my opinion, beyond a shadow of a doubt, sought to, however ham-handedly, collude with the Russian government, a foreign power, to undermine and influence our elections.” — Beto O’Rourke, presidential candidate
“I think there’s plenty of evidence of collusion and conspiracy in plain sight.” — Adam Schiff, chairman of House Intelligence Committee
“I called [Trump’s] behavior treasonous, which is to betray one’s trust and aid and abet the enemy, and I stand very much by that claim.” — John Brennan, former C.I.A. director
“The biggest scandal in U.S. history is coming into focus. On Friday Rachel Maddow made it clear. Donald Trump conspired with the enemy.” — Rob Reiner, film director.
All the news that fits their agenda
Politicians are supposed to be partisan. It’s part of our adversarial system. The national news media, on the other hand, has squandered its dwindling store of credibility. From what I could tell last night, Rachel Maddow at MSNBC and Don Lemon at CNN were doubling down. Their guests pedaled furiously on bicycle whose chains had derailed. Their commentary can be boiled down to “There’s so much we don’t know” and “more investigations, STAT!”
The New York Times early on announced that it would be an adversary of Trump on all of its pages, editorial and news (and, for that matter, Style, Travel, Sports, …) And they won’t let up:
Michelle Goldberg in the Times: “Don’t let Trump pretend he has been vindicated.”
CNN: “Mueller probe ends and the gloating begins in Moscow.”
Rachel Maddow so deep into the weeds last night she needed a flash light and a pith helmet.
Hitler gets more bad news
If nothing else, the news media’s rush to judgment was good for some bitter comedy:
Q. How many Russians does it take to make Hillary lose an election?
The Mueller report was bad news to Adolph Hitler in the Bunker. In yet another parody of the movie Downfall, The nervous generals approach their dear leader.
Mein Fuhrer, the report contains jack [F-ing] squat. A fortune cookie has more damning information.
After Hitler does his meltdown, he recovers to say:
We could always sue to get his tax returns. I mean there’s no law. It’s a tradition, kind of like when the president pardons a turkey. That should get us through the next two years.
Maybe there really is a deep state
Have you noticed? America now has a fourth branch of government: feral, free-range investigatory agencies.
Those of us n Wisconsin know permanent probes. Armed police in the John Doe 1, 2, and 3 investigations held teenagers at pre-dawn raids on their homes and rousted women out of their showers.
There’s something very rotten in America’s intelligence agencies … You think the House can launch investigations, Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff? Sen. Lindsay Graham will show you what investigation looks like.
Sen. Graham last night suggested Robert Mueller seized on an opposition file created by a Democrat(ic) party vendor as an excuse to spy on the Trump campaign. He plans to do his own digging.
Hillary Clinton may yet go to jail.
This just in from the Babylon Bee: “Atheist requiring evidence to believe anything knows for certain Trump colluded with Russia.”
